Question about Honda Pressure Washer PSI 3000
So now I am trying to find a pump for my md.xr-2600 gc160 honda pw. and am not having much luck because honda dose not carry the pump. I have been told it might need to be replaced with a karcher pump. but have not found anybody that can confirm this .. when your pump frezzes up it gets very hard for the pull cord to work so it breaks and is usally caused by a bad pump???????
Before you trash the pump, try this. Get a very good flush through the entire system from faucet to trigger. Let it run for say, 5 minutes. Make sure that there are no high spots in the hose supply line where air can be trapped. Once done, start the engine, but this time with the trigger depressed on the spray nozzle. This acts like an unloader, and makes it much easier to start, as there is no back pressure. I had a P/W that I had to crank that way. It worked for me. I have a new one now, and I still crank it the very same way. One last tip: If you need to shut down the machine, say, for a pit stop or lunch, leave the trigger depressed with the engine off. It allows the pump to cool, and makes re-starting much easier.
Best regards, and please rate this solution. Thanx, --W/D--
